Our Love Story
Zeryk and I met in a way you'd probably never even guess. We both met on the PlayStation 3 while playing in a public lobby on Call of Duty. We were both the top of our team for the score. Being we were the top two of opposing teams, Zeryk messaged me privately and challenged me to a one-on-one showdown and it was on. I'm always open for a challenge! So I joined the lobby, he talked some trash over mic about how he was going to win and he lost... terribly. Not by his own choice, of course!
A few weeks went by and we "ran" into one another again on a completely different game. This time, we took the time to chat since I had a microphone to talk this go-around. We spent hours just chatting about life and everything in between. Hours turned in to days, days to weeks, weeks to months and before I knew it, we were really good friends. I could tell him anything and he could do the same with me. The only problem? He lived in Arizona and I lived in Virginia.
Several months went by and we decided that we wanted to meet. Zeryk purchased a ticket here to Virginia and we met for the very first time in person. The rest? Well, it's history. He never left Virginia after that visit and we have been inseparable ever since. This was in 2009.
On March 8, 2011, our beautiful baby girl, Zophelia was born. She is our sweet-yet-sassy activist at heart. On December 17, 2011, we said our vows and promised one another forever. On June 19, 2012, we welcomed Zayne; our little #zombiezayne; our gamer! On October 27, 2016, we welcomed Zim; our sourpatch who is one moment sour and the next sweet. During this time, we also said our “see you later” wishes to a sweet twin that at 9 weeks gestation, couldn’t survive any longer; Zim’s Forever Twin. Lastly, on January 14, 2019, we welcomed Zedwin into the world and when I tell you he is a happy little guy, I promise it! There’s never a time he isn’t smiling.
Life has had it's ups and downs. We've overcome many battles and we've had our share of disappointments.. but we have weathered them together. Our love is what keeps me balanced. Zeryk makes me laugh when I don't want to. He makes me look at the bright side of things when I'm down and together, we bring out the best in one another. I'm the optimistic one and he is the realist. He's the peanut butter to my jelly. (haha)
This is our life, and our love.
